It is an important bridge for the Yangtze River Delta, the Pearl River Delta and Taiwan Strait's western coast economic belt. It is also one of China's key gateways to the outside world. Shantou has been honoured with the titles of China Brand Economic City, China Top 100 Investment Environment City, National Intellectual Property Rights Experiment City, National Sanitary City, National Environmental Protection Model City and China Top Tourist City.


Shantou lies in the Hanjiang River, Rongjiang River and Lianjiang River's outlet to the sea. With various fine ports and the honour of "Century-old Commercial Centre", it is one of the first ports in China opening up to the outside world.


Shantou has eight pillar industries, including electronic information, mechanical equipment, fabric and clothing, craft toys and chemical plastics. Taking advantage of its port status, it will focus on developing port-oriented industries, such as petrochemicals, energy and equipment manufacturing.
